The Shapeshifter is a cut character that originally appeared in an act that later became Murder on the Owl Express. It is depicted as a tall, multicolored creature, that almost seems to be sewn together. At its front is a multitude of eyes in various shapes and colors, never blinking at the same time. Atop the creature are two small nubs resembling ears, and it has two very thin legs. Its movements are odd, and it often contorts and wobbles in an odd manner.
In the final game, it only appears as one of the victims in Queen Vanessa's manor and his frozen remains is in the bedroom on the second floor of the manor.
Due to the lack of any footage or playable builds of the game that contain the Shapeshifter as a character, it's difficult to say for sure how it would have acted in gameplay. However, concept art for Murder on the Owl Express suggests that it may have been able to kill multiple suspects at once if it finds itself ensnared with them.
- In the Beta build of the game, there are unused localization files with text for the Shapeshifter, and they are as follows:
"OH. My. GOD. I'm totally busted! How EMBARRASING!
Wanna hear a story? When I was in kindergarten, I knew a girl who looked just like you...
And whenever I would talk to her, she would yell...
THE MURDERER'S IN HERE!!"
